¶ Crowley's most infamous pornographic work. It was written by Crowley with the intention of penning the most ridiculously extreme sexual fantasies ever produced - for the edification of his wife Rose. The first edition, issued circa 1904, bears the false imprint of "Cosmopoli" and an imprint date of "1881", both of which are false. Most copies of the first edition were destroyed by British Customs.
